Since 👻 Halloween 🎃 is right around the corner, I figured sharing this book would be *chef’s kiss* for the Halloween theme. Usually, I’m not one to read thriller novels, but this one was fantastic!
Genre: Thriller 🙂
Breakdown: Readers will find themselves at the story’s apex and work their way backward. The novel lays out out life of Ansel Packar, a serial killer on death row, told by him and the women who have surrounded his past and present. The storyline begins with the countdown starting at the twelfth hour, where Ansel walks us through the narrative of his thoughts and what it’s like to be on death row. Other characters include his family, work colleagues, and a detective with a connected past to Ansel, which we find out later in the story.
Read it if: You’d like to keep your lights on at night.
Is it funny: Nope.
The cover: Purple, with an easter egg, quite beautiful.
Do I recommend it: Absolutely, the author made this book such an easy read, so many people I recommend it to tell me that they could not put it down!
Every turn of the page makes you wonder where this story is leading up to next; it was so good.
What I loved most about this book is that Danya did not throw around fancy words that remove you from the momentum of the story; it was very conversational and intentional, which really held me in. Absolutely a great read; great job Danya!
Rating: 4 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
